Try, Hope and Luck

I often go on about how important words are. They differentiate us.  They proceed and set up our actions. And when used wisely are the most powerful tool you have to encourage, motivate and drive yourself and others forward. Politicians are made (and damned) by them, therapists heal with them and leaders inspire with them. Is it any coincidence that professional speech writers are employed by many people across business and sports? We even talk in movie terms about great scripts and admire people who "have a way with words"

So where am I going with this? Well, there are three particular words that I would suggest you delete from your vocabulary. Permanently. They have no value and will hold you back every time they pass your lips. They are energy sappers, ambition thieves and goal terrorists. So what are these heinous words - try, luck and hope. Here's why:

In the words of Master Yoda "Do or not do - there is no try"

Benjamin Franklin wrote "He that lives upon hope will die fasting"

Gary Player said "The harder I practice the luckier I get"

So eradicate them and don't let them underpin your excuses. Replace hope for trust and you'll be amazed at the difference.
